Understanding – Pendulous Breasts Information
Pendulous breasts are often refereed to as deflated, empty or saggy. Saggy is a very broad word that can describe any breast that either hangs low or is somewhat tubular. Pendulous or deflated breasts often have very soft tissue and a longer tubular appearance with the nipples pointing somewhat or completely downward. This is very common and normal after having children, losing weight or simply from aging. Pendulous breasts have much more tissue at the bottom of the breasts that at the top or what is known as the root. Many women with pendulous breasts describe them jokingly as “a tube sock with a grapefruit in it.” As funny as this may sound it is a very good comparison when describing pendulous breasts.
Soft tissue is very common in women with pendulous breasts. If your breasts are not firm, cave in on the sides or top when bent over or are very thin at the top but fuller at the bottom then you have soft tissue pendulous breasts.
Soft tissue and pendulous breasts often go hand in hand. The best bra for pendulous breasts needs to have deep cups and a soft or longer upper cup to stabilize and support the upper and thinner breast tissue. Having a soft upper cup will help stop the “jiggle” effect of your breasts even when performing vigorous activities. An underwire will also help greatly to lift the breast to create a more rounded shape rather than a longer shape. Rigid cups also help support the breast and keep them from sagging even further.
